I don't see the point of a full on ooze shield (especially with only a single extruder) simply to stop ooze resulting from using the cool head lift option in Cura. Is there any setting for this? Or is there a better alternative to cool head lift?

    Your question is not clear. Cool head lift leaves little strings but they are very easy to clean up. Usually. This is for very very skinny things like the antennas on the top of the robot. Alternatively you can print a tower next to the robot which results in a beautiful print - it makes a huge difference. It does seem a waste but we are talking about very small amount of money.

    Ideally place the tower such that you get good fan blowing on your "antenna" or whatever it is that prints in less than 5 seconds per layer.

    I can't argue with the fact that it's a pretty small amount of money, but the tower can only be so big and take so long to print. I guess I'll work on improving my cooling though, that's probably my best bet. Thanks for your input though.

    I know this forum is centered around the Ultimaker, but are questions about other printers are allowed in sections like The Art of Printing?

    You can use a small cylinder 5mm wide to do the tower ;)

    For questions relating to other printers they can be asked of course but for specific problems you might not get good answers as most of the users here only have Ultimakers. But some problems can be faced with Ultimakers and other printers so it can make sense sometimes

      • S-Line Firmware 8.3.0 was released Nov. 20th on the "Latest" firmware branch.
        (Sorry, was out of office when this released)

        This update is for...
        All UltiMaker S series  
        New features
         
        Temperature status. During print preparation, the temperatures of the print cores and build plate will be shown on the display. This gives a better indication of the progress and remaining wait time. Save log files in paused state. It is now possible to save the printer's log files to USB if the currently active print job is paused. Previously, the Dump logs to USB option was only enabled if the printer was in idle state. Confirm print removal via Digital Factory. If the printer is connected to the Digital Factory, it is now possible to confirm the removal of a previous print job via the Digital Factory interface. This is useful in situations where the build plate is clear, but the operator forgot to select Confirm removal on the printer’s display. Visit this page for more information about this feature.

      • Ultimaker Cura 5.6 stable released
        Cura now supports Method series printers!
         
        A year after the merger of Ultimaker and MakerBotQQ, we have unlocked the ability for users of our Method series printers to slice files using UltiMaker Cura. As of this release, users can find profiles for our Method and Method XL printers, as well as material profiles for ABS-R, ABS-CF, and RapidRinse. Meaning it’s now possible to use either Cura or the existing cloud-slicing software CloudPrint when printing with these printers or materials
